Work will continue Friday, June 28, on the rail line at the Chestnut Street crossing. The work is being conducted by a private contractor hired by Pan Am Railways. While the work continues, Chestnut Street at the crossing remains closed.

The rail line has been replaced and rail service has resumed, but road work at the crossing, including paving, has not yet been completed. The remaining road work will be completed by noon on Friday, at which time Chestnut Street will reopen.

The road was expected to open today, but due to a water main break caused by the private contractor and the subsequent repairs, the rail crossing work was delayed. Road work and paving operations are expected to begin at the crossing at 7 a.m. on Friday, and conclude by noon.

While the work continues, motorists are urged to seek alternate routes.

Businesses on Third Street west of Chestnut Street are open and accessible from Grove Street, via Fourth Street. Businesses on Third Street, east of Chestnut Street, will be open and accessible from Fourth Street and Central Avenue, and via Chestnut Street northbound.
